Hi fellow NJ, you can definitely bring fruit on the plane. I'm not sure about bringing back from St. Thomas. I also plan on bringing snacks and Missing: punch. Fruits and vegetables are healthy snacks and taste better than most of the airline food you've ever eaten. Perhaps you would like to bring your own meal for the Missing: punch. Most of us know you can't bring liquids larger than oz through and you can also bring firm cheese, burgers, and sliced fruit, as long as Missing: punch.
